Less Arctic ice cover

Having been a record minimum in September, in the last few weeks the ice cover has again shown itself to be rather less than in recent years at the same time.
Presumably mild weather induced at high latitudes.

I wonder what this means in terms of winter 2012-2013 climate for NW Europe.

Possibly rather mild conditions, at least pre-Christmas.

This may be aided by a warm SST anomaly of up to 3 degC off the east coast of USA and Canada.
